Ladies at Regency Care Home in Whitefield, Bury have been keeping busy the past few months. What started off as a group knit and natter each week developed into something greater!
Eileen, Joyce, Betty and Marian decided to put their skills to use and knit a selection of baby hats that could be used in hospitals, particularly for premature babies. They are on a mission to reach over 100 by the year end and are hoping that one of the local hospitals would like the donation. So far they are struggling to find one who would be willing to accept these. The ladies were really keen to head out in the homes mini bus and proudly drop off their work in the hope it will be put to good use!
Regency Care Home offers high quality residential and nursing care. The homes activity team have been supporting the ladies with donations of wool.
General Manager Nichola Birkett said about the homes activity programme;
“Every day is different for our residents and this group of ladies enjoy keeping busy and being able to make a difference. As well as knitting they regularly enjoy baking and arts and crafts.
It is lovely to see them wanting to give back to their local community.”
